Also on the agenda were a review of the Commission members’ 15-day tour of the Arab capitals and Israel, preparation of a progress report to U.N. Secretary-General Trygve Lie and consideration of a proposal to call a conference of Arab Government officials to study the Arab refugee problem.

A communique issued after today’s session also revealed that William H. Tuck, International Refugee Organization director-general, is expected to arrive here from Geneva shortly in order to discuss the Arab refugee question with the Commission.
